 •   ROMANTIC THEME —Weeks of
preparation and hard work will be
put before the public for approval this
week as the Musical Society presents
their annual operetta, this year Gilbert
and Sullivan's "The Gondoliers". The
"Duke of Plaza Toro", played by Keith
Simpson, and his lovely duchess, played by Irene Kennedy, are shown on the
left in a typical scene from the production. The familiar "patter songs" of
Gilbert and Sullivan will be presented
in the operetta together with a dash of
romance coinciding with St. Valentines
Day. "The Gondoliers" is the Musical
Society's valentine to the university
and public.

• OTTAWA: The by-election In
Grey North ia now ancient
history, and even tiie interest fo-
cussed on it in Ottawa is beginning to die down. The results were
something of a shock to all parties: to the Liberals because they
felt that their candidate had made
a very strong Impression on the
electors, to the Progesslve Conservatives because the seat was
less than certain, and to the Cooperative Commonwealth Federation because they thought that
they had developed a much stronger campaign than the event

group in the Service are stenographers, typists, and junior

senior hierarchy of more important executives.
I don't think that two per cent

which way the by-election went.
Although the issues, charges and
countercharges, had been fully

group had not become interested,
a fact which might be attributed
to the length of the campaign as
much as anything else.

At a lecture last week, these ■
redshirts decided that no one
should be left in doubt as to the
color of a Scienceman's blood. As
a result, they took a poll of the
class and out of a class of 122, 93

to donate for medical reasons, and
7 were not accounted for.
Thus 78% of third year Applied

Hearing this news, the second
year boys conducted a similar
poll. Their results are as follows:
signed, 127; unable for medical
reasons, 30; not accounted for,5.
In second year, over 80% will donate their pint.
In the fourth year, however,
only 50 percent have signed up.

After keeping the students guessing all week with the tantalising
question "What's In the bag?" the
NUS condescended to enlighten
all at their tea dance which marked the end of the old clothes
drive last Friday afternoon.
Friday afternoon ako marked
the opening of the bag and all who
attended the opening received
quite a shock.
For, after crawling onto the
floor under its own propulsion,
the bag opened to reveal—a bag.
Out stepped Miss Roma MacDonald.
She then proceeded to go into
a dance, followed by a snappy
chorus of the WUS executive.
Needless to say, they, too, were
suitably attired  in bags.
The girls apparently were too
enthusiastic In donating their
clothes to the "Clothes for V-'
Bomb Victims" drive and their
costumes were the only alternative.
Many old clothes were accumulated during the drive and $33
was netted for the Red Cross at

. . . THE UBYSSEY . . .
Tampering With Discipline
There's an old belief carried around in
the heads of members of council that all one
has to do in order to lend dignity to any occasion is adorn it with a member of council.
Students allow them their egos on most occasions because it is usually the only payment for their services. We have wisely
made it an honor to sit on council. Honor,
combined with power, and two with money,
make council positions very attractive.
Council members never lose an opportunity to impress this upon students— in a
very modest manner, of course. The latest
manifestation of council ego has come with
the recent persecution of the Discipline
Committee. Council wants a dignified, unprejudiced committee of discipline. Naturally, the only thing to do is put members of
council on the committee.
Council members have now got themselves into a position in which two of their
favorite theories are in direct confusion. It
is interesting to watch them as they try to
extricate themselves from such an uncomfortable position.
Up until a short time ago council worked hard and well at the double task of governing student affairs and planning for the
improvement of the governing machinery.
In addition, some worthwhile plans for the
future were being developed. But under
misguided pressure from the student body,
who saw in this activity only a great political
plot, council cracked and is approaching the
well-known deep end. They'wander now
through the slough of despond with only
their well-worn egos to support their weary
Last Fall, primed with unlimited enthusiasm, they hit upon the idea that council could work better if the duties of council
members were spread more evenly and if
there were two or three more colleagues to
take on the extra work. But later on came
Discipline Committee Chairman Les
Raphael, matching his enthusiasm with an
equal amount of disillusionment, to demand
the re-organization of his committee.
Strangely enough, he thought it had failed.
Quick like a bunny, the committee faded,
and became a part of plans to revise student
When students rejected their plans for
government revision, council members were
caught with no Discipline Committee except
themselves. Committed to the proposition
that council is over-worked, self-saddled
with the unnecessary job of revising the Discipline Committee, council members are
now trying to keep the doings of their right
hands a dark secret from their inquisitive
left hands.
"Over-worked" council members will
now have another job, maintenance of campus discipline. But the Discipline Committee will have dignity, and of course there
will be no prejudice because there is no prejudice on council. It goes without saying,
also, that the committee will be much more
• in all seriousness
•    IT'S AN ILL wind that blows no good
as the saying goes and the recent street
car negotiations in the news are blowing
some good toward Varsity students.
People are so engrossed
with the prospect of having
either no street cars running
at all or having street cars
run slower than usual that
they have forgotten to chastise university students for
not giving their seats to mid-
afternoon matrons.
No letters to the editor
or the "Buzzer" have appeared in recent days pointing out that one of the main benefits of a
so-called higher education is that it enables
a person to sit comfortably on a crowded
street car while elderly matron ladies sway
perilously in the aisles.
Why university students should be
classed as people who should know better
is one of the great mysteries of life. Why
a casual brush with Plato's Theory of Ideas
should raise a person so far above the average youth of today that he would willingly
give his street car seat to an elderly lady
is likewise as present unknown.
But whatever be the effects of higher
education on a person's degree of politeness,
I have found that university students, on
the whole, are several degrees more polite
than the average youth of Vancouver today.
This doesn't mean that students can feel
righteous, since the politeness of the average
youth of Vancouver is so well hidden that
even Mrs. Dionne cradling quintuplets in
Primarily the decision to disband the
committee is based on one specific incident,
which seemed to justify the suspicions of the
chairman that it would often be possible to
flout justice on this campus. He thought it
would be possible for faculty p" olitics to force
the committee to change its mind, or neglect
its duties altogether.
We all remember the fire hose which
sciencemen attempted to play upon the
snake paraders after the great Arts pep
meet. That action was against the rules of
the Alma Mater Society. The chairman of
the Discipline Committee saw the two persons who were responsible for the action
as they took down the hose. They were
senior students and one was a fraternity
brother of two members of the Discipline
Committee, who were also presidents of the
two faculties concerned.
The chairman hesitated to take action.
He was afraid of the power of the two faculties and the influence of two senior students. He felt that the Artsmen would not
like to have a fine levied because they were
indirectly responsible.
He thought that because the two presidents of the faculties sat on the Discipline
Committee no action would be taken, which
would discredit the committee. He thought
the trouble it would cause would be out of
proportion to the seriousness of the incident.
He sought council permission before he
called a meeting to deal with the situation.
Even then he asked the president of the
AMS to sit in on the discussions, in his
' capacity as an ex-officio member of all AMS
committees. Regardless of the fact that he
had a law to uphold, he wanted the might
on his side as well as the right.
As he predicted, the two faculty presidents, in committee session, did not feel that
any action should be taken. Arts believed
they were really responsible and Science a-
greed. It was only after the AMS President
had pointed out that a law had been broken,
regardless of the reasons and motives, that
the decision of a suspended fine was given.
The two faculty representatives realized
that there is a higher law than inter-faculty
rules and procedure. The UBC law was
applied by the faculty representatives. It
was a much more satisfactory solution than
any dictatorial decree by disinterested members of council. The suspended fine was
given in recognition of the past services of
the two students. The Discipline Committee
never worked better, not only in its constituted capacity, but also as a means of bringing two rival faculties together for the solution of a mutual problem.,
We shall have more to say about this
later, but before we end, we should like to
point out to all students the ominous fact
that the administration found it necessary
recently to dismiss a student for stealing,,
without any consultation with the students.
Council should stop tampering with the Discipline Committee before students lose a
voice in campus discipline altogether.
her arms would ride for several blocks before someone vacated a seat.
Considering that the average university student is a few degrees more polite in
the matter of giving up seats on crowded
street cars, why do so many otherwise intelligent people point an accusing finger at
the products of UBC and say; "Boors. Look
what education does."
The answer is simple. People who criticise university students severely and continuously on minor points are antagonistic
to universities whether the students are
polite or not. People who criticise in good
faith fail to realize that university students
basically are no different from other youthful citizens. Politeness is not a product of
education—it is the hope of the ^ducators.
Irrespective of just or unjust criticism,
however, the fact still remains that young
men of today are reluctant to give up their
seats, not because they do not realize their
responsibility, but because they are frequently too lazy.
Not too lazy to get up, but too lazy to
assume the responsibility of giving their seat
up, when there is always the possibility of
someone else making the supreme sacrifice.
There is the additional drawback of seeing
several rosy-cheeked young high school girls
sitting and chewing gum who are probably
in much better health anyway. So the
crowded street car today leads to a war of
nerves to see who can outlast the other seat-
warmer while the elderly ladies sway perilously in the aisles and finally get off.

• reviewing
the concert
• IT IS, indeed, not often that
a renowned music critic will
admit that he is really an outright
layman as far as music is concerned. I am an exception to tho
above policy: I admit that my
knowledge of the art under discussion is practically non-exis-
ent. This fact, however, does npt
mean that my account of last Friday's String Orchestra Concert
will be a waste of time. After all,
is it not better by far to read the
works of the humble than of the
great? No one dares argue with a
critic like Ernest Newman; with
me, on the other hand, one can
use one's acute but latent mental
power in attempting to refute my
statements. Is lt not possible, furthermore, that the mental activity
aroused by the controversial aspects of my opinions will be just
sufficient to make, to some student, the difference between a
pass and a failure this April?
The orchestra under the baton
of Mr. Gregory L. Miller opened
the program with Bach's third orchestral suite. Considering the
difficulty of the piece and the temporarily necessary shortcomings of
the orchestra, I, personally, was
well pleased with the performance.
Although, it must be admitted,
the playing suffered somewhat
from inco-ordlnation and lack of
balance, there were times, especially, during the fugue (about half
way through the first movement)
nnd the "Air for the G-String,"
when the orchestra exceeded
splendidly what must have been
generally considered the limit of
its capacity.
Kreisler's "Praeludium and Allegro" for violin and orchestra can
possibly be interpreted in two
ways, dependent on whether tho
musician is of the sloppily sentimental or strictly mathematical
school. Mr. Henning Jensen, the
soloist, while by no means an extremist, tended toward the latter
and, I believe, preferable interpretation. Mr. Jensen's technique,
especially during the cadenza, was
by any standard excellent: his
high notes were exquisite, his low
notes were exquisite, and all the
notes in between were quite exquisite also.
The orchestra throughout the
performance seemed somewhat too
frightened of drowning out the
soloist. Consequently, the playing
was of the variety of too soft and
not quite loud enough. But under-
emphasis in such a case is highly
preferable to over-emphasis.
Probably I am not qualified to
criticize M. Ravel. Listening to
his music creates a high tension
in my nervous system, a tension
that can only be relieved by the
soothing sensation produced by a
finely skilled hand drilling my
teeth. To describe the "Pavanne"
I might use a phrase applied to
another piece of music by Mr.
Bernard Shaw: "It is really a
fins piece of music, providing one
comes in late enough after it is
started and leaves soon enough
before it ends." It pleased me immensely that the orchestra did not
do this piece as well as the others.
It wa.s in Haydn, espccial'y th?
"Serenade," that the orchestra
found its medium. Mr. Miller'.;
interpretation and the orchestra's
playing were quite of thc highest
order. Hearty congratulations are
due both to the orchestra and conductor (and of course, to Mr.
Haydn) for introducing such delicate subtlety into the piece.
Thus lies the Concer vivisected.
But it will not do to leave the
program dissociated and dead, for
vivisection implies rather strongly
dissociation and death. We must
integrate the parts: to do this I
paraphrase Sir Earnest MacMil-
lan's intermission speech: the orchestra played not for the enjoyment of the players alone nor for,
the audience alone but for the
complete enjoyment of both. A
more sincere compliment could not

The Editor,
The Ubyssey,
Dear Sir:
I wish to thank you, Mr. Editor,
fou publishing in your paper my
letter of protest against the literary thieving as practised by your
ardent contributor, Mr. Peeper.
It was also most gratifying to
see a reply to *his by the above-
mentioned plagiarist in which,
through his denial, he ascended
the heights of confession. There
is no greater proof of any crime
than that which comes from the
lips or pen of the culprit himself,
and Mr. Peeper has furnished such
invaluable  proof.
In my previous letter I mentioned that I was taking up my
pen in defence of Mr. Addison.
That was all-.but it was enough
to permit Mr. Peeper to acknowledge himself as a hypocrite and
an imposter in the field of literature; for, in his reply, Mr. Peeper
emphatically declared that "there
is not a quarterly published in Europe or North America relating
to literary or scientific subjects"
to which he does not subscribe
and never has he seen in them an
article by Mr. Addison. By this,
therefore, he was attempting to
show that he had never before
heard of Mr. Addison nor of his
paper. As Mr. Addison's paper Is
a dally publication, this is understandable.
But, if such be the case, how
does Mr. Peeper know that Mr.
Addison's paper bears the title
"The Spectator?" There are approximately 2900 witnesses who
will support my statement that
such information was not contained in my last letter.
The man is obviously an imposter and I refute him thus.
As to the second half of his defence, he may certainly "fight it
out to the bitter end;" only, I
should like to add that I have no
doubts as to who is going to experience the "bitter."
It was the acknowledgement that
was required, and tfie failure of
such to be forthcoming has led
to the only possible and honorable
course: an open denunciation of
this "player at words."
"There is no arguing with Johnson, for when his pistol misses fire,
he knocks you down with the butt
end of it."
I am, sir, your humble servant,
"Sam. Johnson."

I. S. S Campaign
What Your $5000 Did In China
Chungking, November 15, 1944
Mrs. W. L. Grant,
International Student Service of Canada,
Hart House, University of Toronto, Toronto 5
Dear Mrs. Grant:
The five thousand Canadian dollars which were forwarded by the
International Student Service of Canada through Mr. Bell in Chengtu
have been received and in exchange are equivalent to $800,000 national
currency. Following your suggestion that the ISS of China and the >
National Student Relief Committee should consult together about the best
way to divide the money so that it might be most effectively spent for the
benefit of Chinese students, we have held a joint discussion and have
determined upon the following appropriations:
)200,000 national currency is to be spent for textbooks to be placed
in the Student Center maintained by the ISS at Stiapingpa. The books
purchased with this money will have an appropriate bookmark affixed
to them in order that students using them may know that these are a
gift from student friends in Canada.
$100,000 national currency is to be used by the ISS Committee to
establish scholarships for selected students, which will be known by
some such name as Canadian International Scholarship.
1500,000 national currency is to be spent for winter clothing and
bedding to be given to students of Honan University. This University,
as you know, suffered greatly under the attack of the Japanese last
May, and the students now relocated at a small town on the Shensi-
Honan border are practically destitute and desperately in need of
clothing and bedding. The NSRC has already given emergency help
through its local student relief committee there but the need of these
students is very great and especially for clothing and bedding now
in the cold weather. Practically everything was lost in the evacuation.
Here again It will be explained to the students that this help Is an
expression of friendship on the part of Canadian students.
The monies for these projects are already being distributed.
We are certain that these allocations meet real needs and that
students receiving this help also will have a genuine sense of the
concern and sympathetic friendship of students In Canada. On behalf
of our'respective Committees may we thank you and, through you,
all student friends who have contributed this gift.
With kind regards and best wishes personally,
Kiang Wen-Han, Executive Secretary Han Lih Wu, Secretary,
National Student Relief Committee. ISS Committee of China.
Canadian University Campaigns
(a) Students were given a list of ten names: each canvasser appealed
for one dollar. This brought In about $1,500.00 of the total amount contributed.   (This is a very effective way, particularly if your canvassers
have a good knowledge of the background of ISS.)
(a) Tags were sold, at twenty-five cents each, at two of the big fall
dances. This has the advantage of reminding students of the campaign
to come.
(b) An "All-University Skit Night"—skits were contributed by all
faculties, which allowed of some fun between medical and engineering
students! Admittance was a 75c ISS tag. For one day previous to the
Skit Night, tags were sold on the campus—25c blue ones for those who
counldn't go to the show, and 75c red ones for those who were able to go.
Of course there was no penalty for buying a 75c tag even if the student
couldn't go!
(a) Three sets of colored tags were sold, at 25c each to every student
The Campaign here is now in progress, and there is to be an aquacade at the end of February. The objective here is one dollar per student.
A play night Under the auspices of the Queen's drama guild, which included two plays and a quiz of professors similar to "Information
Please" wa.s successfully held. Two raffle sales gave satisfactory results.
Queen's plans a carnival novelty dance and tag day. There will be a
concert on March 6 which will feature a noted pianist and singer. A
successful campaign is anticipated.
The International Student Service drive was advanced to the week of
February 19-23 by a decision of the Executive Committee of the Student War Council, at a meeting'recently.
Owing to events in early March which will conflict with the prearranged dates set for the ISS drive, it was decided to advance the
drive one week, to February 19-23. Methods of canvassing were discussed, and it was agreed that during this campaign, students would
be approached through the fraternities and that canvassers would be
appointed by the class presidents.

Ball Display to
Chamber of Mines
• MEMBERS of the G. M. Dawson Club are happy. The B.C.
Chamber of Mines has suggested
it could make use of the club's
Science Ball display in its prospecting course.
The display depicts a stream of
real water flowing out of the bottom of a glacier into a amall lake,
over a waterfall, down through a
forest and under a suspension
bridge to a small placer operation.
On the right bank there is a mine
adit and dump and on the left
stands the prospector's cabin and
The sides of the display are decorated with strata which the makers  claim are  geologically sound.
Yes, the Dawsonites are happy.
Nobody asked the prize-winning
civils for their bridge.
• STUDENTS are asked to submit any briefs that they may
have, in connection with the proposed revision of the constitution
of the Alma Mater Society, in
writing. This is desired in order
that there might be no conflict
as to what was submitted,
Jim Wilson, head of the Student
Goverment Revision Board, told
the Ubyssey that the progress ot
the board Is very satisfactory. As
to its future success, Wilson said
further, "I am very optimistic a-
bout the future success of the
committee in bringing about a solution to the problem of the revision of the constitution."
Ted English, president of the
Players Club, ls to submit a plan

War Painting
By 17 Year Old
—(BUP)—Vincent Meyers, Union High School student, deft with a brush'and
too young to go into the
Army, put down on canvas
some somber thoughts about
war. He called his surrealist piece, "The Year 1942."
Recently, Michigan State College bought the painting by the
17-year-old youth for its permanent exhibition at East Lansing,
In bright oils, Meyers painted
hideous symbols that represent the
blitz from the Axis. Prominent ln
the compostition is the clenched
fist of America rising from tha
background of an industrial city.
The fist clasps a tool, Indicative of
America's part In producing war
goods. Roofs and spires are done
in oriental perfection.
Execution of the painting,  tha
lad's art teachers said, consumed
most of a school year.
Between the execution and tha
sale lies the Intermediary of the
Grand Rapids Children's Gallery,
established under Otto K. Bach,
now director of the Denver art gallery. In addition to temporary exhibits of school art, She gallery
maintained a permanent collection. Meyers' canvas, first shown
in the spring school display, was
retained for this permanent exhibit.

•   VARSITY VIRTUALLY cinched the Tisdall Cup when they swamped
Ex-Byng 13-0 at Brockton Point on Saturday.  In the other tilt, Ex-
Britannia put over a last minute try to decision Vancouver Rowing Club
by a score of 7-3.
The Blue and Gold showed much power in their smooth-running
baekfleld and it was this factor that kept the Byngites off their heels
during all the contest.
Tom McCusker, dynamic wing
at three-quarters, opened the
scoring for Varsity after taking a
pass from Jack McKercher on the
ten and eluding five tacklers in
going over for the three points.
Jim Hughes, league high scorer,
missed the convert from a difficult angle.
The Scarlet & Grey roared back
with a vengance but it proved disastrous for them as McKercher
caught them napping. Taking the
ball on his twenty-five, Jack popped a kick over their heads and
Johnny Hicks, speedy left winger, raced 50 yards to a try behind
the posts. Bob Croll kicked the
convert to raise the score to 8-0.
Both squads found t3Te going a
little tough in the second half as
play went from one end of the
field to the other. Mid-way
through, Jack Armour, sensational
find at wing forward, fell on the
ball In the end zone after the
scrum had dribbled it over tho
line. Jack shows signs of developing into one of the finest players
at his position since Keith MacDonald changed over to second
line in the scrum. Croll kicked
his second convert of the day to
finish off the scoring.
Although the score shows that
the Blue and Gold had a comparatively easy time in winning the
contest, their scrum showed that
they definitely missed Earl But-

• ENCOURAGED by the number of spectators of both sexes
that appeared at the swimming
meet, we're going to stage two
more sport spectacles for our
campus fans. This week will see
the finals of the badminton singles,
and the touch football.
Wednesday at noon the first of
these will be held.  In the gym,
Darry Thompson of Mu Phi, and
Bob Nilan of Delta Upsilon, will
flght it out to determine this year's
Intramural Singles Champion. We
have   watched   both   these   boys
play, and there's no doubt some
top flight badminton Is on tap.
Friday, at 12:30 In the Stadium, Epsilon and Kappa Sigma
will meet to decide tills year's
touch   football   championship.
Here's a game that will give
you all the thrills of any football  game  played  anywhere.
Although there'll be  no vis-
clous tackles, the blocking Is
for keeps.   The game will be
wide   open,   long  passes  and
sweeping end runs being featured.
Incidentally, the basketball
schedule is moving along very
nicely. Some of the weaker teams
have been eliminated, and if you
drop into the gym any Thursday
or Friday at noon you can see
some interesting games between
strong Intramural quintets.
We've been asked to remind
the intramural representatives that
there will be a meeting Friday at
noon. Also, the Golf Tournament
will soon be played, so you'd better put a match under your

Rowledge Tallies Equalizer
• ENTHUSIASM ran high for
the Varsity Ice Hockey team
Sunday night as freshman Jim
Rowledge pulled the Varsity puck-
sters out of a one-goal deficit to
give them a 5-5 draw with Kirks'
It was one of the roughest games
of the season for the Blue and
Gold puck-chasers as they battled
from the tail-end of a one-sided
contest to come from behind and
knot the count.
As usual, the UBC squad started
slowly, but by the time the second
period opened, they began to apply
the pressure and capitalized with
a goal by Dick Hadlan on an assist from Ted Taylor.
Kirks came back with another tally a few minutes later,
finally getting the rubber disk
past Reg Clarkson after the
basketball • playing goalie
had knocked aside three rebounds.
With the count at 3-1, the Varsity crew went on a scoring spree,
swishing two counters into Kirks'
goal, but again the commercial
sextet retaliated to make the score
Awful Of Thought
EDITOR'S NOTE: For all those who are freshmen, Jim was
Associate Sports Editor of thc Ubyssey last ycar. A victim of University exams, he gives all students, and especially freshmen, a
few words of advice.
• OUT IN THE STICKS (Special to the Ubyssey)—Approximately eight
little weeks from now, all you aspiring intellects will be facing the
greatest campaign ever cooked up by two opposing parties.
It will be something like General Eisenhower and Company (ABC
etc.) against the Siegfreid Line, but in reality it will be you students
against everything the the UBC Faculty can throw up against you.
Now, here are my words of advice, which I trust will reach you
in plenty of time, Starting now, you should be spending every bit of
your spare time in the library. There are plenty of books over there to
provide ample excuse to beetle over there.
Once you are in the building, look around carefully, but not too
consistently in any direction, and select an empty seat next to the person
who seems to be working the hardest. This person will in all probability
be the person who least needs to study, so I tell you, pick her out and
go over there and sit down.
The next step is to attempt to study equally dilligently, for a few
minutes at least. That is as long as the second step lasts. The third step
consists of unconsciously twiddling a book or pencil, or any other thing
that is merely lying around. This move is designed to draw her attention.
When you find that she has at last got her eyes fixed on you, even
though it be in a look of great annoyance, you look up at her and gaze
into her eyes. This look must contain a great amount of anxiety and
worry to bring the best effect.
Look at her until that hard look begins to soften and then say,
"Ah, would you mind saving this seat for me while I go for a reference
book? I have a problem here that I can't quite get." Now if she Is
really interested she will say to you in return, "What is it? Maybe I can
help you. I might have taken that course at one time." (She will say
this even though you know darn well that she is having a damnable
time getting through first year).
If that little preamble works the set-up is complete until a few days
before the campaign, You, of course, are on your own from this point
on. If you have managed to get as far through life as to reach this institution, I know that you need not be told how to proceed further.
If, however, she merely says "OK" you must ramble off for a
few minutes. Later, you return to your chair with a very satisfied look
on your face. She will interpret it as success with your research, but
you, of course, can't help grinning because you know that she can't
escape your little trap this time.
As you pull up your chair, you must thank her for her care and
then say in a very friendly tone, "You know, I didn't know it "was as
simple as that."
Then you explain some quack theory to her, developing the details
as her interest waxes and wanes. Before the conversation is over (in
either Case I or Case II), you must find out which courses she is taking
and Which courses she has taken.
Then you form a mutual friendship over courses in common and
make arrangements to study or memorize allotted sections of the common
courses. You must then go through this procedure every day until you
have all of your courses well lined up.
The final arrangement is to see that you are properly seated in
the exam room.
The foregoing programme was compounded through two years attendance at this institution and at the sacrifice of one additional year.
P.S—This is purely a theory. I don't know whether it will work or
not, but I'll find out one of these days.
Jim Rowledge, assisted by Ernie
Cooper, accounted for one of those
goals, while Bill Buhler tallied the
other on a tricky solo rush.
In the flnal period, Kirks
peppered the Varsity goal and
managed to push one past
Clarkson when he became
tangled In the nets. That made
the score 5-3.
In the last five minutes there
was plenty of hectic play .as the
Blue and Gold sextet battled a-
gainst time. Gordy Smetanuck
closed the margin to a single goal
as he took a pass from Rowledge
and hammered it home.
It looked like defeat for Varsity
until Rowledge came through with
the thrilling last - minute goal.
Skating madly down the left wing
from the face-off, the freshman
dashed right in on Kirks' goal and
side-swiped the puck past the
Grass Hockey Gals
Down North Van;
Freshettes Lose
• VARSITY'S Senior grass
hockey squad galloped to another victory Saturday when they
trounced a bewildered North Van
^aggregation 8-0. Audrey Thomson
sent the first goal into the net for
Varsity, and was soon followed by
Lorna Lang, Irene Berto, and Irene
Pearce with one counter each.
Marge Watt, starry centre forward,
repeated her usual performance
by tallying four goals for the winners.
North Van held Varsity to three
goals in the initial half, but tired
in the final period to let Varsity
forwards sneak in with five goals.
Under ideal playing conditions, the
seniors showed their usual good
form and will soon be camping
on the Ex-Kits' doorstep for first
place honours.
The Frosh team, missing their
two competent full backs, did
not do as  well as their big
sisters, for the took a beating
to the tune of 7-0 at the hands
of a strong Ex-Britannia squad.
The Brits scored six goals in the
first  half  before  Varsity  got  on
their feet, but in the second canto,
playing much better ball with the
addition of Ev Wright, the Freshettes held them to a single try.
Girls are reminded of the Physical Education and Recreation Club
meeting tonight in the home of
Miss Moore. Rosemary Collins
will be the guest speaker.

to be the most thrilling event of
the evening. In a photo finish

doing so, he clipped half a second
